Tasting notes

Composed of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Fran and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Puy-Blanquet gives up notes of warm red and black cherries, mulberries and fruitcake with hints of baking spices, fallen leaves and dried Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is tautly structured with firm, chewy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and lively.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (April 2019)

This is the most beautifully ripe plum colour, with soft violet reflections and floral touches on the nose. Pretty strong tannins steal up through the firm, full-bodied palate, which is loaded with acidity and fruit, completing the the triumvirate. This should see slow but steady ageing.

Jane Anson, Decanter (April 2019)

A red with lots of richness and density and flavor. Full body, plenty of round tannins and a long and flavorful finish.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com (April 2019)

The 2018 Puy-Blanquet is a rich, creamy and sensual wine with tremendous near and medium term appeal. In 2018, Puy-Blanquet is especially lush, almost shockingly so, for a Saint-Émilion that is usually quite classic in feel. Inky red and purplish berry fruit, spice, rose petal and mint build as this silky, pliant Saint-Émilion shows off its racy, inviting personality. Don't miss it.
